So you tried running a new task in Task Manager, like I said?
Have you installed any program that 'hacks' the dll to change its appearance, such as LiteStep?
I have used LiteStep before, and i have had problems with it before : help! installed program and things have gone wrong - Vista Forums
otherwise it could be a graphics problem, which is out of my knowledge to a certain extent. Lil' Domii
